Burberry Westcott Shoulder BagIn my opinion, the Burberry Westcott Shoulder Bag is a very clear case of a bag that looks much better in person than it does online. This is the best picture I could find to see the immense detail of the bag’s construction, but it still looks stiff and kind of messy, don’t you think? In reality, it’s anything but. The neat rows of buttery soft leather ruffles are cropped close enough to the bag to not look silly, but still long enough to give the bag tons of texture that makes it much more than just another black leather hobo.

The leather that makes up the base of the bag is just as soft as that that makes up the ruffle decoration, which gives the bag a slouch that would probably break in even more with a bit of use. The strap was plenty long to carry the hobo easily and it also has an extra crossbody strap, if that’s your think. The bag is big but not oversized, and still muted enough, with ruffles and all, to use as an everyday bag that could be carried to work. On the whole, I think Burberry did a beautiful job with this bag, and it’s really too bad that it doesn’t show up well in photos. This is definitely a bag you need to see to appreciate. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2195.

    Wow i love that and if you say its better in real life then it must be fabulous.

  • QueenMAB

    I love black bags that have enough extra details, and this also doesn’t look like a traditional Burberry bag. I will have to check it out in person.

  • Cate

  • twilight_sky

  • stella

    I heart Burberry! If the price wasn’t so steep, I’d take this bag in a heartbeat. It’s simply beautiful. And I love me some buttery soft leather too. The details of the bag is absolutely gorgeous too.

  • hazel

    Maybe I’d better see this in real life because on my screen it just looks like a plain black bag! I can’t even see the ruffles.

  • leah psimer

    this bag is to die for in person and ON SALE in the soft mauve color at Nordstrom’s right now! Call the Atlanta Phipps location if you want it. Love it!!

  • Carolyn

    I hope it looks better in person because now it looks like felt. nice shape though

  • Julia

    I have to wait to see it to judge it- if it looks better in person. Not loving what I see from the photo because the ruffles aren’t that appealing. The structure is nice though!

  • DBL

    I love it!

  • Tina

    This bag does look way better in person!! I swear. The leather is buttery soft, and I love it at the first sight.

  • Theresa

    Demi Moore actually tweeted about hers with a twitpic here, and a great pic of the bag!

  • Lindsey

  • Susie Lau

    Demi’s is not the same…one is the ruched ribbon Hobo bag the other the Westcott. the Westcott (which is the name on the dockett of the bag I bought has the vertical ribbon rouching and Single handle)…the other (Demi’s) has leather straps down the front and back of the bag and a horizontal “shirring ” effect.

  • Anne Dean

    Loooove this bag. The leather is exceptional and very easy to carry. I agree it does not look good in the picture.
